Tony: At Least Kansas City Recycles Old Arguements

This town has a twisted way of looking at so many of its setbacks that’s not really optimistic but more delusional than anything else.

For instance, this year has already hosted some major setbacks for this town and yet there seems to be a widespread and ongoing effort to portray these local disasters in the best possible light.

It’s not just run-of-the-mill political spin that Kansas City professionals have employed. And to call it propaganda makes it seem a tad too sinister. I think it’s more akin to a fat chick lying to herself about losing the weight. There are good intentions but the end result is usually failure.

Is that too cruel?

Probably, but it explains why I only date hot broads who hate themselves.

In any event, allow me a few examples that might provide some insight into how Kansas City continually lies to itself:

1. Just a few hours ago MSNBC was first to report that The Kansas City, Missouri School Board voted 5-4 to close half the schools in town. The effort was called “right-sizing” but it’s only an admission that this town has pretty much destroyed it’s public education system.

2. Chiefs and Royals PR – Let’s be forthright. Nobody believes the teams are even close to making the playoffs but the beginning of both football and baseball season offer all of the metro area a strange time in which we delude ourselves one season after the next.

3. Your favorite politico – I bag on the Mayor enough on my personal blog. However, I have to note that it’s not just his political career that has turned out to be a huge bust. Kansas City’s estrogen heavy mostly female Council was cause for great celebration at the outset. And, true to form, the collection of ladies have done nothing but catfight to an embarrassing extent. It seems as if every election the local electorate is trying to overcome overwhelming disappointment.

Whether it’s art, politics or culture Kansas City has a knack for disappointing and then calling it a success. While stark reality might be too much to deal with 24 hours a day, it’s not at all comforting that petty bourgeois niceties so often prevent this town from confronting and addressing some rather important setbacks in local life.

    Tony should earn a pulitzer for this. I mean he’s just destroying the nets with this political coverage. Fat chicks in KC are way out of control and rumor has it they cause a lot of moped wrecks, which by the way is super elitist and also racist.

    Tony should run for mayor of KCK and lead a radical social experiment. All the white folks in Wyandotte County move to Jackson County and all the Blacks and Hispanics in Jackson County move to Wyandotte County. Give Tony 4 years to lead his people(s)….we’ll agree to give Funk a 4 year renewal and may the best man win.
